Consensus Comparison: Guy Ritchie, Straight Outta Compton, Baumbach August 15, 2015

Locarno has just concluded its 2015 edition and, disappointingly, there weren’t enough reviews to allow CRU to cover the festival meaningfully. The index is here. Each page contains a link to at least one review, but most of the world premieres don’t have enough to create a consensus. There’s more to come as additional festival reports get published in the next several weeks.
